While many bridal magazines and fashion shows tend to showcase bridal gowns for slim brides, there are lovely plus size wedding dresses. Full-figured brides should not waste time or risk their lives going on dangerous diets or starving themselves to fit into a smaller gown.

A bride also has the choice of working with a designer to create a gown that fits them well. Either way, whether the choice will be a gown off the rack or one that is custom-made, there are details that will work well for a plus-size bride.
One is the neck line. The best neckline for a larger figure is one that breaks the line from the neck to the bust and this is a V-neck. The V shape draws the eye downwards and gives room to show off a necklace which also detracts from a heavy chest. Sweetheart necklines also work well. A high, round neck has the opposite effect; it makes a large bust appear even larger as there is no distinction from the neck and the best. Another unflattering choice would be strapless styles. They make the shoulders look large which makes a full figure look even fuller.
Another important detail is the shape of the dress. The best shape for plus size wedding dresses is the A-shape. A fitted bodice with a skirt that flows from the waist creates the illusion of a small waist. Also, an A-shaped skirt flows over curves rather than clings which is flattering and comfortable. A gown with a wrapped waist or the illusion of one takes in the waist and takes the eye to the side and away from the curves. An empire style dress is another good option. It elongates the lower body and keeps the attention higher up and away from the curves below.
Another important detail for plus size wedding dresses is the fabric it is made of. It is best to use fabrics that flow freely rather than cling. Fabrics like silk and satin are alright for fitted parts like the bodice while stiffer ones like taffeta are ideal for the skirt. Lace is a timeless and pretty fabric. Use it to disguise heavy areas like the arms.
